New loach never comes out or eats

About a week ago I bought a new clown loach but I haven't seen him eat once. He never comes out of his cave either. I have another clown who is always out and having a great time with the other fish. I have plenty of hiding spots but the new clown refuses to come out. The way I have my PVC tunnels arranged I can see him in there. Most of the time he lays on his side but will get up when he sees me. Is something wrong with him. How long can he go without food before he kicks. I've had him for over a week now.
